"Pennington's devotion to the Brontës is earnest, but her memoir is also very funny."
―Winnipeg Free Press
"This is about as far from dry, passionless literary criticism as you can get. Pennington treats the Bronte material with the reverence of a book lover, but never loses sight of the sisters also being human, with human foibles and vulnerabilities. She weaves her story through theirs to great dramatic effect, giving thoughtful examination to how literature can affect our lives."
―Portland Book Review
"Pennington understands the Brontë sisters and is skilled at bringing them to life."
―Providence Sunday Journal
"Pennington combines long-term, deep knowledge of a biographical subject with a certainty that life lessons may be drawn from that subject in the here and now. Her approach is eye-opening, personal, and engaging."
―The Santa Fe New Mexican

Ms. Pennington is warm, humorous, and honest. Her use of language, her choice of focus, her very funny conversational style, all work together to draw us in, and by the final page, we feel we know her well.
We have spent a few hours with a brilliant and entertaining friend!
